Unemployment Poems (1)

Please hire me.
I could use a job.
I would like
very much
to have some place to go,
something to do with my days.
I would really like
to order something on my pizza
other than garlic salt and ground pepper.

Find me work.
Let me have reason
to wake up before noon
and give me a chance
to meet people somewhere other than city parks and bars.

I could use some assistance.
I really need some support.
I insist that you provide me a way
to be of service.
I need a job
and it’s your job
to get it
for me.
